Using Constant Contact API, Butterfly Publisherâ„¢ integrates with Email Marketing to easily add social digests and promotions to marketing campaigns

Needham, MA – March 20, 2012 – Socialize Your Stuff today announced that it has developed an integration between Butterfly Publisher and Email Marketing from Constant Contact®, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTCT) , enabling Constant Contact customers to produce and maintain high-quality social content and push social content to their email list in the form of social digests. The integration will be featured in Constant Contact’s MarketPlace, an online resource that connects small organizations with tools and services for growing their business.

“This integration with Constant Contact’s Email Marketing reinforces the importance that email plays in successful social marketing initiatives,” said Jeffrey Mesnik, President. “Now, any business that uses Constant Contact for its email marketing can easily produce and distribute a social digest.”

Social Marketing is about engaging people in a conversation online, and then transforming these people into your army of sales people. By interlacing social promotions in this dialogue, you start to see a conversion from conversation to sales. Each social network has a real benefit to offer, and a Constant Contact mailing list is essentially another social network. By contacting people with email, it reminds them of the conversation and directs them back to that conversation for further engagement.

“Marketing today is all about using relevant, timely content to drive engagement,” said Rick Jensen, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at Constant Contact. “And while social media is a great place to have that engagement, email continues to be the key way that businesses deliver content and get their message heard. It’s really the combination of email marketing and social media marketing that produces powerful results.”

Butterfly Publisher is a social content management system that organizations can use to aggregate multiple content sources (such as RSS and Twitter feeds, Google and Bing search results, and custom libraries) to easily create and promote social marketing messages for their brand over a wide range of social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, as well as blogs like WordPress and Blogger. In addition to these social networks, Butterfly Publisher sees email marketing providers like Constant Contact as another type of social network that brings email subscribers into social conversations. Connecting to Constant Contact is as easy as clicking a button, granting permission, and choosing the email list.

Businesses ranging from technology resellers to online retailers have used the Butterfly Publisher promotion engine to expand awareness of their brand and build their marketing database. In a recent promotion, one online provider saw a 2% sharing rate yield a 300% increase in referral impressions. This added thousands of new email addresses to their email list.

For TurnOnDynamics (a Microsoft CRM reseller), Butterfly Publisher provides the aggregated content they need to maintain a social conversation with their customers. “The ability to go to one place and filter all my different searches, scan through them, re-post content to where I wish and then track the results made it a very low-key process”, said Peter Joeckel, president and founder of TurnOnDynamics. “Now I can use my email list so that none of my customers will miss this great content and the conversations it generates.”
